  1. Leveraging XenMobile to Maximize your Mobility Deployments with XenDesktop and XenApp

    XD XA XM Blog

    There is a big misconception out there that MDM somehow equals EMM….this couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, the Citrix Mobility Report for 2013 (which surveyed more than 700 customers) showed that mobility means more than just smartphones and tablets. Mobility even means delivering Windows apps to mobile devices. A complete EMM solution needs to address at a minimum: Mobile Device Management Mobile Application Management Enterprise File ...

  2. Delivering Lync 2013 voice and video from XenDesktop, XenApp and VDI-in-a-Box

    Since we introduced support for Microsoft's Lync® 2013 VDI Plug-in (headless media engine) in Citrix Receiver 4.0 last year, we've seen rapidly growing customer demand for this optimized solution. There are clear advantages to offloading real-time media processing from the XenDesktop, XenApp or VDI-in-a-Box server to the user device (see my blog post Delivering softphones and UC apps with HDX real-time technologies). As we promised when ...

  3. Watch out for dark shadows! Side-by-side comparison for HDX 3D Pro and vSGA

    Last week, I blogged about what goes on behind the scenes with alternative 3D technologies from Citrix and VMware. All these technologies appear to solve the same problem, and indeed, may even appear similar during evaluations to an untrained eye. Benchmarks are easier and quicker to run and measure, so many people use these apps to do a spot-check before moving on to real production ...

  4. Under the hood of GPU Sharing technologies: vSGA and vGPU

    Graphics apps are built to think they "own" the underlying physical hardware. The goal of all virtualization technologies is to let them continue to think that, while intelligently sharing the physical resources among multiple apps or separate users. The closer it can get to the physical behavior, more complex the apps that can be supported. Tim Mackey has posted discussions on the alternative 3D technologies, and how to ...

  7. Comprehensive multi-tenancy for DaaS from Citrix enables you to choose the “best way” instead of being constrained to a “one true way”

    You can geek out about exactly what “true” multi-tenancy might mean in a Windows world, or you can recognize the value of Citrix’s comprehensive multi-tenancy options.  The real winners are already using Citrix. Citrix Service Providers (CSPs) have been offering an array of multi-tenant services for several years.  Many with multiple pricing tiers based not only on the applications available as part of their managed service, ...
